A more comprehensive children's curriculum is also available in print. The joyfulness booklet includes four lessons that motivate children to nurture a personal relationship with Christ and experience the mutual delight and peace of fellowship with Him.

  1. Let His Spirit Rule My Emotions features the story of the prophet Habakkuk facing uncertain times.
  2. Resist Discouragement features the story of David being attacked, robbed, and threatened yet encouraging his heart in the Lord.
  3. Look for Good in All Things features the story of Paul and Silas singing while shackled in prison.
  4. Fellowship with Him features the story of the celebration over the rebuilding of the Temple.

Through this study, children are taught how to overcome discouragement by rejoicing in Who God is. As children seek, trust, and obey the Lord, they will find Him to be the Source of deep, inner joy.
